WHAT LAB TESTS ARE IN THE CANCER SCREEN AND TUMOR MARKER PANEL FOR MEN?

The Cancer Screen and Tumor Marker Panel for Malesincludes the following tests:

1.     Complete Blood Count (CBC)

2.     Chemistry Panel (16 essential tests)

3.     Alpha‐Fetoprotein

4.     Beta‐2‐Microglobulin

5.     Amylase

6.     Neuron‐Specific Enolase

8.     Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)

AM I REQUIRED TO FAST FOR THIS PANEL OF LAB TESTS?

Yes.  You must fast at least eight (8) hours prior to having your specimen collected.

DESCRIPTION:

Medical researchers have identified more than a dozen substances that, when at abnormal levels, can indicate cancer.  Tumor markers are measurable biochemicals that are typically associated with a “bad” or cancerous tumor (malignancy). They are either produced by tumor cells or by the body in response to tumor cells.

The Cancer Screen and Tumor Marker Panel (Male) from ANY LAB TEST NOW screens for several types of cancers that affect men.

While scientists have not discovered markers for every type of cancer, this panel will evaluate the levels of common tumor markers related to cancers such as liver, lung, testicular, prostate, stomach, gastrointestinal, and pancreatic.

Among several tests included in this Value Panel, the Cancer Screen and Tumor Marker Panel includes theCarcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) Test.  This measures the amount of this protein in your blood that may be present in people with cancer. CEA is normally produced during the development of a fetus and stops before birth (it is not present in the blood of healthy adults).

It also includes the Alpha‐Fetoprotein (AFP) Test that can determine if you have a protein that can lead to liver cancer.

Beta2‐microglobulin is a protein found on the surface of many cells in your body.   This test can help determine if you have specific types of cancer affecting white blood cells including chronic lymphocytic leukemia, non‐Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and multiple myeloma or kidney disease.

PSA please see individual test

 HIGH RESULTS INDICATE:

COMPLETE BLOOD COUNT: Please see individual test.

CHEMISTRY PANEL: Please see individual test.

ALPHA-FETOPROTEIN:  Elevated  levels  can  indicate  liver  cancer,  ovarian  cancer,  germ  cell tumor of the testes, cirrhosis, hepatitis or other cancers.

BETA-2-MICROGLOBULIN: High levels indicate a poorer prognosis in your condition.

AMYLASE: Elevated levels can indicate pancreatitis, pancreatic duct obstruction, pancreas cancer or gallbladder attack.

NEURON-SPECIFIC ENOLASE:  Elevated levels could indicate neuroblastoma or small cell lung cancer.

CEA: Elevated levels of CEA indicate tumors somewhere in the body.

PSA: Please see individual test.

LOW RESULTS INDICATE:

COMPLETE BLOOD COUNT: Please see individual test.

CHEMISTRY PANEL: Please see individual test.

ALPHA-FETOPROTEIN: There are no low levels for this test.

BETA-2-MICROGLOBULIN: Lower levels mean a better prognosis for your condition.

AMYLASE: Low levels of amylase may indicate permanent damage to pancreas cells.

NEURON-SPECIFIC ENOLASE: There are no low levels for this test.

CEA: Lowering levels indicate that the tumor has been removed.

PSA: Please see individual test.

WHAT IF MY LAB TEST RESULTS ARE ABNORMAL OR OUT OF RANGE?

Please consult with your primary care physician, who may refer you to an oncologist.
